Viewing Large Multipage Tiff files
Posted on 2004-04-19
We used windows 98 and the built in Kodak image viewer for viewing large multipage tiff files. This works fine. Now we are upgrading the machines to Windows 2000 but the built in Kodak viewer for Windows 2000 does not work properly. Viewing the pages in large tiff files (say 250 pages) is very slow.
Let me add that the actual tiff files are stored at a central location on the network.
If I copy the tiff file to the local machine and then view it, it works fine.
I have tried using Irfan View which works better but also slows down when viewing the later pages in the files.
None of these problems occur on a Windows 98 machine. Is it that Windows 98 copies the tiff file locally to the temp directory?
Which viewer is the best one to use, preferably a freeware one?
Thanks in advance
